The Hybrid Organisation – Making it Work

I often describe the confluence of factors – economic, environmental, demographic and technological – which are driving change in the way individuals and organisations work.  Last year, Microsoft developed its Hybrid Organisation theory which explored how these factors are impacting, or could impact, the organisation. Today, Microsoft publishes its latest report on the Hybrid Organisation […]

Human “bat sight” and Neuroplasticity

The Art of Feedback–Matthew Stibbe

I like this.  It rather drips with frustration but I have a great deal of sympathy with Matthew Stibbe’s 12 essential lessons for giving feedback to writers.  We share some of the same customers, so perhaps it’s no surprise that I recognise many of the issues. I would add just one other: Stick to your […]

Microfiction and the Art of Storytelling

Peter Guber talks eloquently about purposeful storytelling in his book Tell to Win and on the HBR site, as blogged previously. Nicholas Bate’s 100 Word Story is an interesting example.  It’s really all about mood and paints its picture beautifully. Technorati Tags: Nicholas Bate,Art of Storytelling,Peter Guber,Microfiction
